Hi all,

I have applied on my partner's 485 visa as subsequent entrant from offshore through a lawyer on the 02/09/2016 and yet to receive an acknowledge letter.

My application was decision ready (lawyer advised that medical will have to be done upon DIBP request)

Please advise current processing time for 485 subsequent entrant visa. Her 485 will finish on 29th December, 2016 and we do not have much time.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Did you get any information about your application. I lodged my application on 2/9/2016. And I got acknowledge letter today. My agent said that it will take about 3 months to get the decision.
How about you?

Hi CD277,

Sorry, I missed your post.

I have also received my acknowledgement letter within a week of lodging the application.

My lawyer advised that an outcome of the application might take 3-4 months.

Do you know if there is any way to track progress of the application?

Unfortunately,I also dont know how to track my application as well. Just waitingggg. Dont have any request or answer for my application :(
When did you lodge your application? It seem that you lodged earlier than me. I receive acknowledge letter on 9th Sep. And didn't hear anything about that until now

My lawyer lodged the application on 02/09/2016

My partners' 485 will expire on 29/12/2016, really worried about processing time as we don't have much time.

If a sc485 application is decision ready, then it can be granted as soon as it been allocated to a case officer.

Currently around 40 days, for a subsequent entrant, to be allocated.

Have one lodged on 23/08, granted this morning.

No upfront clearances (medicals and character), will take a bit longer.

The medicals can be done before allocation.

If the time is a matter, then you may to get it done as soon as an acknowledgment letter is received.

Do not know if there is a reason there, which prevents you in doing so.

That's such relief, thank you!

My lawyer advised not to do medical until CO ask for it :(

By character, do you mean form 80?

Did you mean "Police check" for character? My agent also tell me that I didnt need to do medical until the CO ask for it. My friend lodged application on 3 Aug and she's got her visa on 29 Sep. Then,a guy lodged on 23/8 and visa granted 7 Oct. Hope next week will be us,rafa :-s
So worry

Hi,
I applied for myself (not through any lawyers or agent) de facto 485 subsequent so the schedule is:
7/8/16 - received
11/8/16 - acknowledged
14/9/16 - medicals, australian police check (I've actually done this beforehand but mine is standard disclosure while they need complete disclosure. So i applied and got it like 3 days, PC in Aus is very fast) and insurance.
Provided everything on 21/9/2016
Visa granted 23/9/2016, so after only 2 days after you respond.
Hope it helps

...didnt hear anything until now. I lodged with police check from my country. Not australian police check because i've never been there before. My application also include insurance. But i didnt do the medical test.
Moreover,in April,i've rejected Visitor visa. I'm very worry about my application now. :( :(
